    Default New to this site..

    Found a sticker with this site on it in a goodie bag from the 6 Oct car show I attended, thought I'd check the site out.
    .
    My name is Don, from Hackettstown, N.J., my ride is a 2011 Shelby GT500.
    Ordered the car on 17 May 2010, took delivery on 3 July 2010, to date 7050.8 miles on the clock.
    A baseline dyno netted me 481.4rwhp / 476.7 tq.......................no longer stock !!
    Got invited to a track rental on 20 Oct., finally gonna see how fast it is.
    ...................Some pics & other info..

    The race wheel/tire (Hoosiers more so) setup looks great. It totally changes the cars attitude.

    It still screams "tint my windows" though.

    Welcome to the site.

    Does the car have a roll bar? If not, my guess is the strip will shut you down after a couple passes because that car will/should be well under the 7.50/12.00 break. My guess is 6.80's/10.60's all out.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.

    Tinting the windows would only give the police another excuse to pull me over, no thanks.
    Doesn't have a roll bar, can't see cutting up that much of the interior on a " street " car. If I get a couple of passes, that's all I need. Hoping the track rental will be a little more slack on the rules..This car has the potential, it's up to the driver to get the most out of it, we'll see.

    I completely understand about the windows. I'm lucky enough to live in a state that has pretty lax tint laws, and I make full use of it, lol. Like all of us, you more than likely have a goal #. In all honesty, what do you think she'll run?

    I live in a state where you can't own a slingshot, & have to have a front plate..
    Based on weight & hp, it should do 10.1. Now the question is can I get it to do 10.1 ? This may be a case where the cars full potential will not be realized because of the drivers lack of seat time................1 more week !!

    But you will have a great time learning! Be sure to let us know how "week one" turns out!
